I’ve lost my faith in contemporary books by new authors, since I’ve read so many that have failed. But “Windfall” was perfect. It was just what I wanted to read, about a trio of friends that break and bond after winning a lottery ticket. It’s not exactly exciting or different, but the relationships crafted out between every character made me feel warm, with their authenticity. You can tell the author has put her heart and soul into the phrases, that aren’t full of prose but have a deep meaning to them. The general style gave this book a star quality and the characters were all loveable and stay with you for a long time! Definitely recommend! 4/5
